British designers Alice Made This and Marwood celebrate their shared philosophy of experimentation with British manufacturing and the creation of new and exciting products from traditional processes, with the launch of four exclusive tie-pins and ties.
Alice Made This, known for her precision metal turned cufflinks and inspired by Marwood’s diamond logo design, has designed four tie-pins available in 24ct. gold, silver, copper and pure rhodium plated, precision metal turned, using a brass bass.
Marwood, influenced by Alice Made This metal work, has developed four individual silk and wool jacquards in partnership with their trusted silk mill in Suffolk, England. Staying true to the Marwood love of texture and pattern, the colour options offer the customer a variety in luxury.
About Marwood: Marwood launched its first collection in January 2011, showcasing a handcrafted range of ties and bow ties made with the finest fabrics such as woven silk, wool and traditional English Leavers lace. Modern and highly considered, Marwood creates accessories that celebrate the traditions and techniques of a rich and distinguished heritage and uses the most skilled, historic factories and fabric mills across the UK.
Marwood approaches each season with the challenge of innovation, whether that be with new weaves and textiles or a new take on a classic item. Each product intends to ignite excitement from discovering something new and be treasured and worn time and again.
